Question Boot Problem in Grub ?


I have Now Successfully installed grub version 1.96 and there's also the menu like in 0.97 to boot. I got this menu after running update-grub command. Now I updated the grub.cfg (similar to grub.conf in v 0.97) as per rules in the official documentation website:

http://grub.enbug.org/grub.cfg
http://grub.enbug.org/TestingOnX86
http://grub.enbug.org/TestingOnEFI

All of these web sites are in:
http://grub.enbug.org/

The main purpose of loading grub 1.96 is hfs+ file system support. this support was added in v 1.92
I want a triple OS Booting (fedora 9, Mac OS X leopard, vista). All of my OS's are installed in different drives. Mac OS X is installed in hfs+ file system while vista in NTFS.

After updating the grub.cfg file, it gives the following errors:
For Mac OS X:
error: Invalid signature

For Vista:
error: read write error

in grub 0.97, it was unable to mount hfs+ file system and I was getting 2 OS. Now in grub 1.96, there's only fedora showing and I am able to boot only 1 OS.
Please Help.

It is showing every item in the boot menu, it displays these errors when I press the enter button to boot the respective OS.
